Okay I’m moving these posts back here. Every time I think I’ll make a blog specific to this one thing, I end up not liking it as much and find it more motivating to post on this blog. 🙂
So for the past couple of weeks I’ve done alright on the exercise front and for the last week I actually did pretty good on the eating healthier front. Still not awesome, but baby steps. I made one change in my goals and that is that I decided to go for the quarter marathon instead of the half. In training time it was just more realistic for me to train towards six miles than 13 because I just don’t want to take the time it would take to do longer runs in training. I’m okay with the length of time of the actual race, but I have limited free time and I need to consider carefully what I plan to do with it. But I did already register for the quarter marathon in May and for the warrior dash in September. I feel like I have appropriate time to train for both.
I also bought Kinect and several of the workout games. So far I’m quite enjoying it and it’s a nice change of pace for days when I don’t want to run, but still want to get some exercise.
This week I’m out of town so I will try to get some longer runs in because there’s no baby bear or fabulous husband to hang out with so I don’t mind taking the extra time. I’m shooting for at least a half hour of exercise a day Monday through Thursday probably mostly running perhaps a bit of yoga. Then Friday I’ll probably do some Kinect in the AM and weekends I play by ear especially since I’ve really been into organizing the house. I will likely choose that over exercising for a while.
